Tell your class the stories of black women who have overcome adversity and used their strengths to change the world. These women have left legacies that cannot be ignored and should be celebrated and appreciated.
This assignment contains one biography worksheet over the life, work, and legacy of Katherine Johnson. The second page of the assignment includes opend-ended questions that allow the students to apply to information that the researched to their own lives. The assignment is two pages in length and takes about 45 minutes to complete. I also used this assignment to have a 15-20 minute class discussion over the information that the students found. This is a great assignment to use when teaching your class about research information and citing their sources.
I have also used this assignment as a group assignment, and it worked very well.
